Question about D-Link Air Xpert DI-774 (DWL-774) Wireless Router
Why can´t I access the web-based configuration for my D-Link router, print server, or access point?
Posted by Anonymous on
Note: Not all D-Link routers, print servers and access points have a web-based configuration utility. Please check the manual for your particular product. In particular, the DWL-900AP does not have a web utility while the DWL-900AP+ does have a web utility. You cannot gain web-based configuration utility functionality for the DWL-900AP by installing the DWL900AP+ utility. When entering the IP address of the D-Link device (192.168.0.1 for example), you are not connecting to a website on the Internet or have to be connected to the Internet. The device has the utility built-in to a ROM chip in the device itself. Your computer must be on the same IP subnet to connect to the web-based utility. Make sure you have Java enabled and are using an updated web browser. We recommend the following: Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher Netscape 6 or higher Mozilla 1.2.1 (5.0) or higher Opera 6.0 or higher Safari 1.0 or higher (with Java 1.3.1 or higher) Camino 0.7 or higher Firefox 0.8 or higher -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Internet Explorer 6 (SP1) users: If you continue to receive Error 500 when trying to connect to the web-based configuration of your D-Link device, make sure you have the latest Windows update for Explorer 6. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you have Windows XP or Server 2003, you must download the latest Java patch from www.java.com.

Step 1 Verify physical connectivity by checking for solid link lights on the device. If you do not get a solid link light, try using a different cable or connect to a different port on the device if possible. If the computer is turned off, the link light may not be on. What type of cable should I be using? - http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?pr... Step 2 Disable any internet security software running on the computer. Software firewalls such as Zone Alarm, Black Ice, Sygate, Norton Personal Firewall, and Windows XP firewall may block access to the configuration pages. Check the help files included with your firewall software for more information on disabling or configuring it. Step 3 Configure your Internet settings. Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel. Double-click the Internet Options Icon. From the Security tab, click the button to restore the settings to their defaults. Click the Connection tab and set the dial-up option to Never Dial a Connection. Click the LAN Settings button. Nothing should be checked. Click OK. Go to the Advanced tab and click the button to restore these settings to their defaults. Click OK out to the desktop and close any open windows. Step 4 Check your IP address. Your computer must have an IP address in the same range of the device you are attempting to configure. Most D-Link devices use the 192.168.0.X range. Click here to find your IP Address on your computer - http://support.dlink.com/faq/view.asp?pr... If you are attempting to configure a D-Link router, then make sure you take note of your computer´s Default Gateway IP address. The Default Gateway is the IP address of the D-Link router. By default, it should be 192.168.0.1. If you are attempting to configure an Access Point or Print Server, you may need to configure your computer with a Static IP Address in the appropriate range.
